Does a character provide focus but not often? Do other characters in the story know them by name or by some unique attribute or description?
Any character that gets a name or is unique description/identification is at least secondary and perhaps primary.
Any named character becomes important due to human psychology; describe someone as “a waiter” and we’ve described their function, describe someone as “Bobbie the waiter” and we’ve given them an identity.
